Economy

  • After growing by 3% from 2004 to 2008, the economy in the Swaziland slipped significantly in 2009, primarily due to the effect of the global economic downturn on export-oriented sectors, in particular textiles and wood pulp.
  • Other important factors were ongoing drought and low levels of foreign direct investment (FDI). In 2010, the economy recovered slightly due to a rebound in global demand for sugar and textiles.
  • However, falling receipts from the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) coupled with lower internal revenues limited the government’s ability to implement counter-cyclical measures.
  • In order to control the economic conditions of the previous year, lower interest rates were maintained, similarly to South Africa.

History

  • The Lilangeni was introduced in 1974 to compete with the South-African rand through the Common Monetary Area, to which it remains tied at a one-to-one exchange rate.
  • According to tradition, the present Swazi nation moved south before the 16th century to an area now called Mozambique.
  • After a series of wars with people living in the area of modern Maputo, the Swazis settled in northern Zululand in 1750.
